Are you coding with AI? + Have you switched from Google Search?
Hi there! I've always been a late adopter. After spending over a year reading about fellow developers using AI in coding, I finally made the switch to Cursor yesterday. It's an AI-powered code editor that's fully compatible with VS Code.
What has been your experience with AI-assisted coding? Have you tried both Copilot and ChatGPT? If so, which one would you recommend?
Bonus question: Many people, including me, have noticed that Google Search results aren't always the best for certain queries. I tried DuckDuckGo but eventually returned to Google. Lately, I've come across positive reviews about Kagi. I'm considering making a permanent switch from Google to Kagi. Have you tried it? If so, what are your thoughts?
Lastly, on the topic of coding productivity: Do you use an offline documentation viewer? I recently began exploring Dash. I've noticed that I spend a significant amount of time browsing MDN and other documentation online. However, searching and reading online can be less user-friendly and time-efficient. Using a dedicated offline documentation app, which syncs in the background, seems like a better option. Have you gone this path? If so, what's your take on this?
